Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike747 Friendly staff, but small shower
Every contact we had with the staff was warm and friendly. Very nice people! My only concern was the size of the shower. I'm a pretty thin person, but the shower felt very small. And even though the shower had a basket that hung from the shower nozzle to hold soap and shampoo those items kept falling to the floor when bumped.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MSU parent Great location and beds were clean and comfy.
Overall experience was very good. We stayed for 5 nights for MSU graduation. Located close to MSU, restaurants and shopping. Breakfast is good - eggs perfect (not over done) - but same menu everyday. The only issue we had was with our card keys - apparently the are disabled after a couple of days. We had to have them re-issued twice over our 5-day stay - a problem when you get back late at night in 40 degree weather and can't get in the hotel from the back entrance - had to walk around the whole building to get in from the front of the hotel. Ran across another couple who experienced the same problem.

I stayed for MSU graduation and this location was perfect to get to MSU and the East Lansing area. Although prices were higher than normal for graduation they were comparable to all other hotels i checked. The service was outstanding for how busy they

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by rox18 Disappointed in the price hike for graduation
The hotel was crowded but not full. Yet the price jumped 51% for the second half of our stay not including the extra person charge (my son had to join us) even though none of us could get breakfast because it was too crowded and no trays were available to move to your room.

This was an excellent hotel to stay at. I enjoyed the room and the comfort. In addition, the breakfast choices were excellent. I had the most wonderful stay and would recommend this hotel again.
Can a hot tub be added to the pool area for after a workout and just to relax. that would be the topper

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friar D Comfortable and convenient
I had an early meeting downtown Lansing and rather than drive up in the early morning I choose to come in a day early and bring my wife for a quick getaway. I chose this hotel because it was convenient to downtown Lansing and had amenities for DW. I had reserved a standard (2 queen) room but was upgraded to a Jacuzzi suite at no extra charge! Very nice! As we got in late we did not have time to use the pool etc., but did get to use the Jacuzzi. The breakfast was tasty with a selection of fruit and cereal and eggs and pancakes and and and. Good coffee too!
For the cons, I found the bed a bit soft for my taste, but DW loved it (pillow top soft). I thought (and still do think) the quoted price for a 2 bed queen was very high, but to be fair it was comparable to the area. I would never have chosen the Jacuzzi suite just based on the price, but was glad to get it. If business sends me there again I will stay at this location.

Awesome room. I have been traveling for over a year and staying primarily at IHG hotels. This is by far the frienliest and best value/room I have stayed at.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mommajen Great Stay
We stayed in a 2-queen suite and it was wonderful. Room was extremely comfortable and was perfect for a long weekend with the living room and kitchen areas. Hotel was clean and not overly crowded.
The only downside to the hotel was that the pool wasn't very family friendly as there wasn't a very big 3-foot section for my 6-year old daughter. Definitely more geared towards older children and adults.
Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and the free breakfasts. The location is great, right off the freeway. I highly recommend this hotel, particularly the suites, to any family.

We stayed in a 2 queen suite. It was exactly what we were hoping for. I brought three kids with me and we had a great time without feeling on top of each other. I loved the pool area and the staff was very nice. I only wish there was a hot tub to enjoy as well.

I stayed at this hotel a year ago, and was not planning on staying overnight on this trip. However, the late Spring snow storm had begun, I got lost trying to get to the highway, but somehow as I found the highway I also drove by the hotel. The storm was such, the hour late I elected to stay overnight. I had no reservation, but they had room.

For the most part, this was a very nice hotel. It's close to MSU and there are plenty of choices for nearby restaurants. My only complaint is the way I was treated for the WiFi issue in my room. I initially called the front desk and the lady basically swore I was doing something wrong in trying to connect. Since it was late, I didn't mess with it anymore that evening. The next day after returning to my room in the afternoon, I tried the WiFi again. When I couldn't get logged in, I tried the front desk again. This time, I was given a phone number to contact their technology helpdesk. After spending at least 15 minutes on the phone, the technician told me that he would need to contact level 2 support to get the WiFi problem resolved. He also said I would receive a phone call in the next few minutes. After waiting about 5 minutes, I decided to take a shower. While I was in the shower, an IT service tech left a message to say the problem has been fixed. Sure enough, I was able to log into the WiFi system and it worked great. I have stayed at quite a few hotels and this is the first and I hope the last time I will have to troubleshoot my own WiFi connection problem. Ironically, I was able to connect to the nearby Comfort Inn's conference center's WiFi just fine. Other than this unfortunate mishap with the WiFi, my stay was very pleasant and the room was fantastic. The size of the room and having two separate furnaces/ACs (bedroom and living room) made my stay extremely comfortable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TQk27 Nice stay
We really enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Okemos. The beds were great and the room was awesome with a HUGE Jacuzzi tub we weren't expecting. The biggest disappointment was they had gotten rid of the hot tub by the pool in lieu of adding a bigger work out room. I wasn't interested in swimming but I could have really enjoyed that hot tub while my kids swam.

The staff was very friendly & helpful at check-in and throughout our stay. The guest room & public areas were all clean and orderly. The bathroom was large and clean; we really liked the new shower head & plush towels. The pool was warm & we used it with our Granddaughters both days. It was nice that towels were available in the pool room. We thought the breakfast was excellent. The food was fresh and a good variety. It was a great facility for a weekend getaway and we will definitely go back again.

I like the feather free rooms, the nearly-firm beds, and the local staff are top notch - friendly, helpful, and promptly attend to requests for help, above and beyond the call. Will stay there whenever I'm in the MSU/Okemos area.

1. For the price, not comparable to other IHG properties.
2. How do they slice that bacon so thin, almost only one side to it.
3. Outdated amenities.
4.IHG loyalty members receive zero recognition on the day I was there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joe F Nice place to stay
Very nice hotel room. Even had the little extras like a clip on the window curtain to keep it closed, not just most of the way closed. Breakfast was very good as well and the pool looked nice. We did not use it but many people were. Go to breakfast early if they are busy because seating is limited. That was the only drawback to this hotel. I would definitely stay here again!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BenBG No help for the restless.
Entire hotel was full of utility workers, which is understandable considering the recent ice storms in the area, but they were drunk and loud from 12;00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. and when we called the front desk for help at 4:30 a.m. ( I am not going to confront a bunch of drunk people) they said they would call the room and resolve the issue. They never called, they never helped and no one even bothered to follow up or even ask how my stay was when I checked out. It was terrible, I understand that they can not control all guests, but to make no effort at all and promise you will. Well, needless to say my wife and I got absolutely no sleep, and for what they charge a night for a stay, I will likely never stay at a Holiday Inn again and recomment others to not do so as well.

We booked 2 rooms during the widespread power-outage that began Dec22. The hotel itself only had partial power too, but the staff still worked to do whatever they could. They were upfront about the partial power outages at the hotel and what we could expect. We were grateful that we had a place to stay and the stay was pretty good under the circumstances.
Breakfast could have been a little better and the jets in our whirlpool tub didn't work, but like I said, we were navigating a power outage at Christmas, so we didn't complain.

We were able to book the room at our local HI after the devastating ice storm and power outage in our area. All went well with the hospitality and accomodations, until the last night of our 3 night stay. Our power was returned to our home at about 4:00 pm. As we had no idea when power would be restored, we were still checked into the hotel for that 4th evening. I arrived prior to 5:00 pm to check out of the hotel. Even under the devastating circumstances and already unusual outlay of money for the hotel, at Christmas time, we were still charged for the 4th night, when we did not even stay at the hotel that 4th night. There was no "disaster rate" offered and only a little sympathy from the front desk, as they indicated we could contact management or Holiday Inn at the 800 number to voice our issues. I have been a loyal Priority Club "Platinum" member for over 20 years and will not let this one bad experience change my mind about Holiday Inn overall. However, I thought my opinion on this situation should be posted.
